Feeling blue....?

Good day

What a time we had. After 13 years, we had the opportunity to visit our lovely continent, Africa, again. This time we explored new frontiers in Angola & Zambia. In 3 weeks we've done 9500 km of all kinds of roads. We experienced a lot good things, but the most of all, I realized how blessed I am to be where I am and with what I have. Here are some photo's.

 This Welwitchia is about 3000 years old

Now for my project:
My Magnolia  project in blue
Tuesday Morning Sketch #259

Hopefully I'm back in blogland, if my creativity can get a kick start. This time with one of my Magnolia stamps. Before digital images, these were my favourite collection. With only boys in my house, this is one of my all time favourites and then I can feel a bit blue too. We are celebrating 2 birthdays this week at the Bible study and what better way to celebrate it in blue. My paper is from Back to Basics IV from Dovecraft Collectrion. The outer die is the Adorning Square and the inner one is A2 Curved Matting Basics A, both from Spellbinder. The swirl is my favourite Marianne's design. The flowers are made with confetti and sequins.

Challenges I'm entering:
Tuesday Morning Sketches #259 - Sketch
The Sisterhood of Crafters - Die-Cuts/punches
Divas by Design - Favourite colour combo with Magnolias
Fan-Tastic Tuesday #45 - Anything goes
Penny's Paper-Crafty #187 - Anything goes

Thank you and have a great day!
Hugs from Africa
